Abortion–A Quick Fix? Listen to This Story….


Let me tell you my story. At 15 I got pregnant.  I was happy and terrified at the same time.  I couldn’t believe I had a baby growing inside me, but I knew I was way too young.  Abortion seemed like my only option.  I couldn’t imagine going through with the pregnancy and giving my baby away.  And my worse fear… my family finding out!  What would they think of me?  I’m a good girl. I go to school. I got a job. And, I cause very little trouble. I tried to tell my mom and even a few older cousins. But, I would shake profusely every time.  I never got the courage. So, at 15, my boyfriend and I had a friend take us to the clinic.  What a memory…

The place is packed with young girls and very few, if any, parents.  It was like an assembly line. First up: a clipboard full of paperwork. I had no idea what to put because I knew very little.  Next up: payment window. Never once did anyone review the paper work that I faked my way through or even attempt to ask for ID. Really! Now it’s my turn to go back.

America’s Love of Natural Black Female Hair

By JasmineHughes

Even with a growing number of Black women embracing their natural hair, there remains an immense fascination with it, this includes both other races and also some unfamiliar Blacks. It seems the ‘Puffy Hair Movement’ will take some getting used to.

For many who don’t know, the term “natural hair” for black women is defined as hair that is not processed and not chemically altered. Straightened hair is often viewed as easier to care for and more attractive, but for some, the dangers of a chemical straightener, like a relaxer, are too much.  So, instead, they opt to wear their hair in its natural state. Natural hair can be described as curly, kinky, wavy etc. the list goes on.

Jasmine Hughes: Should You Have to Pay for Someone Else’s Birth Control?

By JasmineHughes

There’s a new discussion regarding one of today’s most controversial topics: birth control. In the past it has been questioned why birth control pills are currently not covered by most private insurance plans, but products like Viagra are. It seems change may be coming soon.
